6:05pm
they are really far and few between. inventory is low, demand is high. and according to real estate agencies, you better have cash to secure a house right now. when edwin put his san ramon home on the market it was a seller's dream. >> i was surprised to see it sell that fast. >> reporter: he took his family on vacation and returned home to multiple offers and a home sold. >> so we had a good deal and we made money on the house. >> reporter: he and his family are moving to texas where everything is bigger -- and cheaper. but for ruth, it's been a home buyer's heartache. how many offers have you made on the house? >> i think 7 or 8. i'm not sure exactly. >> reporter: just last weekend -- >> 17, 18 other families looking at that house. they all came out, got right on the cell phone to the realtor. and my husband goes, just bid. so we bid like $25,000 over, i think? and the winning bid got $66,000 over. >> reporter: they relocated from seattle to the bay area for her husband's job.

6:07pm
where things lie. >> reporter: you will recall in 2005 the housing market was on fire. people would send letters and videos to try to obtain a house. and also have their offers on the table. it's not quite like that yet, liz. but it's getting there with the multiple offers and the difference now is that home buyers had that solid cash offer right now which actually is a good thing to build that equity as you get your foot in the door. >> the competition is so high it makes it hard. >> reporter: absolutely. >> thank you. bay area headlines tonight in san jose, three home invasion suspects appeared in court. the teenagers are accused of breaking into a house in almaden valley last week tying up an elderly couple with duct tape of police say they took electronics, credit cards, cash and cars. they also are suspected in other armed robberies this month. in sunnyvale medical exercise are trying to identify a woman killed in a mobile home fire. that fire broke out last night at the plaza del rey complex.

6:11pm
graffiti in the last decade. tagging on freeways, bridges, and wall san jose seems to be having its worst epidemic of graffiti in the last decade tagging on freeways, bridges and walls exploding. san jose used to have officers investigating graffiti crimes full time. but cbs 5 reporter mark sayre says the city can't afford that anymore. mark. >> reporter: well, elizabeth, graffiti of course a problem in any big city. san jose no exception. but in a time that the city itself is working to quickly paint over graffiti problems like this, the police department has lost important resources to investigate these crimes. drive along highway 101 between interstate 880 and alum rock and it's hard to miss the
6:12pm
graffiti problem as you can see from chopper 5, taggers have nearly covered a railroad overpass and sound walls on both sides of the freeway. for resident vin win, it is an eyesore. >> i don't like it. makes the neighborhood look ghetto i would say, you know,. >> reporter: while numbers to are hard to come by san jose police say anecdotal evidence suggests that graffiti tagging is on the rise. not only along the freeways but in neighborhoods, as well. >> they would look at trends. they would do outreach in the community. >> reporter: police spokesman albert morales says the department's graffiti task force was eliminated as part of the recent budget cuts. two officers ran intelligence and surveillance operations and made arrests. >> i think most of us look at some graffiti on the wall and trying to figure out, hey, what does that say? these guys were able to look at it and say i know who that guy is, i know what they're tagging, what part of the city they are responsible for.
6:13pm
>> reporter: but the city is fighting back. meet julio bonilla. he is a city contractor who responds to reports of graffiti sent in by residents by phone, email and even smartphone app. bonilla says there is no shortage of work. >> it changes. sometimes slows down, sometimes a lot of graffiti. i don't know how to explain that. >> reporter: and city officials say getting to graffiti quickly helps prevent the problem from getting even worse. >> and so the minute they throw it up, we want to get on top of it. i want to see how many cans he has and we'll keep painting it and painting it. so yeah, there is that psychological angle of not leaving it up so that the person reaps the rewards of the fame. >> reporter: now, as for the stretch of highway 101, that takes a combination of caltrans and also union pacific to get that cleaned up. the city says it is working with both of those agencies to try to make some quick work of that. it is definitely an eyesore out there, liz. no question about that.
6:14pm
back to you. >> quite a battle. >> thank you. nasa taking to bay area skies to find out what is in the skies above us. several aircraft including one from moffett field took off today to collect data on air quality. it was flying low over pollution hot spots like interstate 680. it will also study wind current to help predict where the dirty air is coming from and where it's going. >> probably got perfect air today. it was absolutely gorgeous outside. >> really nice outside. often when you get a high pressure dome literally pushes down on the atmosphere that's when the pollution can get trapped so air quality not the best but it was a nice day to get out. hope you enjoyed it because not everyone in the country is enjoying mid-60s and sunshine. there's a lot of spots that can't get to 36 let alone 6. the gorgeous bay bridge viewed from the top of cbs 5, how about santa cruz? 71 degrees today. redwood city high 69. oakland 66. fremont 65.
6:15pm
our inland locations lagged behind a bit but still last day of january 63 degrees not so bad. here's the not so good part of this. we need the rainfall in the winter to supply us in the summer. we didn't put much in the bank over the past month. san francisco 4" below average, san jose 2.25" below average same in livermore. we are dry in january. no change through the first week or so of february. this is atmospheric water content. water vapor you see the white that's typically where we get rainfall because we have a lot of moisture where you see the dark we are just bone dry. that's what's going on over northern california. so the catalyst for that is a big area of high pressure. there's a lot of moisture on the periphery of it all the way around the edge of the system here but high pressure not moving deflecting all of the moisture all the rain all the cloud cover away from us. so until it moves, it's decided it's not going to through the weekend we'll stay mainly dry mainly sunny and darn we're stuck in the low to mid-60s for highs. so several more dry days. if anything it will be a week from now before we see any
6:16pm
arena here in the bay area. clear nights, yes, sunny afternoons, yes. mild through monday, that includes super bowl sunday, chances are you're going to go to a friend's house or family member's house. it's going to be a beautiful day outside. late next week, we do see the pattern change. several days off though before we see any rainfall. highs tomorrow in the city 63. livermore 64. maybe consider lunch outside tomorrow in san jose with a high of 67. pacifica 64. concord 63. livermore tomorrow 64 degrees. weekend super bowl weekend lest i remind you, we are the official station of the super bowl, mid-60s with sunshine monday, mid- to upper 60s. next week cooler and clear why you but no widespread rainfall until next thursday at the earliest so if you are looking for the rain, get on a plane and go somewhere else because i don't see it. this is a very dry pattern. >> we'll enjoy it. >> mid-60s and sunshine. darn, we're stuck. we'll deal with it. [ laughter ] here's some of the 49ers
6:17pm
pictures you sent to us. these are the students at saint francis of assisi school in concord cheering on their home team. >> wow. >> these are bay area ex-pats in southern california. sarah mull-sent us this picture. she used to live in sunnyvale and san francisco. now she's cheering on the 49ers in l.a. >> and here are ee like. >> and jasmine wade of san francisco, elijah and jasmine flexing their muscles for the camera. >> this picture from now radio the fernando and greg in the morning team. we don't know who they all are but they are joined by the producer jason and assistant producer shawn. >> they have so much fun. we would like to see your super bowl photos. email us at news@kpix.com or upload your photos to our website, cbssf.com. i'm mike sugerman on the side of the road to the dome.
6:18pm
getting my kicks on route 66. the story's coming up. will sunday's game be the fine of alex smith in a 49ers uniform? the former number one pick knows it is in the hands of the front office. >> they're going to do what's best for the team. i don't know what that is. you know? so i don't think there's any necessarily right thing to do.we'll see. i don't know what the options are. >> if smith remains a 49er he will be the nfl's highest paid backup. at the super bowl, i'm dennis o'donnell.

6:43pm
with professional athletes he found the unpredictable nature of sports makes them a breeding ground for superstition. and the bigger the game like the super bowl the more likely superstitions will come part of the game plan. >> football is a really good example of a kind of a sport that has a lot of uncertainty to it. it's a lot of luck involved. and so that's exactly the kind of situation that gets people playing. do all kinds of superstitious activities not only the players but also the fans. >> reporter: count jerry aguilar among the superstitious. >> i promised that i wouldn't get another jersey until we win another super bowl. >> reporter: how old is your last jersey? >> that was, what, '95? the 50th anniversary steve young. >> reporter: aguilar wears a baseball jersey. if you wore a football jersey, would you jinx the team? >> i have to wait for the win. >> reporter: former 9ers coach george seifert never walked on the team logo in the middle of the field. seemed to work for him. >> i guess the most outrageous

career has skyrocketed in the last month... but one hall of fame welcome back, live in new orleans to super bowl 47. colin kaepernick's career skyrocketed in the last month but one hall of fame quarterback provides a cautionary tale and reminder, do not take the success for granted. >> came to see an offense and the wrong one showed up. >> reporter: the dolphins were held to a season low in super bowl xix. dan marino threw two interceptions and would never get back to the super bowl again in his hall of fame career. >> dan, when i look at you and colin kaepernick, there are some similarities in terms of you both got to the super bowl in your second year. what kind of advice could you give to the guy who might think he might be there 10 times before his career is over?

>> you know what? i hope he is. i really do. my advice would be to have fun, embrace it, understand it. it's a unique opportunity especially you know a young kid like that that's only going to be his tenth start in the nfl. and don't take it for granted. i remember back i think i was 23 years old going to the super bowl had a lot of success my first two years and played in that game and thought i was going to be back three or four more times and win a super bowl. and none of that ever happened. so i would say if you have a young quarterback like colin kaepernick or any young player on that football team, understand the moment and how important it is and the history of it because you never know if you are going to get back again. >> reporter: meanwhile, the rest of the league searches for the next colin kaepernick and they may have found him at the nfl experience and that is where vern glenn joins us live. vern.

photographer should have been the first overall pick. that's right, there isn't an 8th round. how about some golf going on right now? opening round of the waste management open in scottsdale. we have seen sausage races and president races in baseball but neither of those compare to a good old-fashioned caddy race. how about phil mickelson on fire. how about the final hole. putting for a birdie and 59, it lipped out. lefty can't believe it! he finished 60 with a four shot lead. amazingly a week from tonight, we will be at pebble beach and phil mickelson will be there as well for the first round of the at&t pro-am. time is flying. just three days away from the super bowl. ken, liz, back to you. >> yeah, tell vern not to quit his day job.
